Connecting Academic Mission with Emerging Pedagogies 

We thrive on designing educational spaces that adapt to the paradigm shifts our clients are facing. Gone are conventional rules about when, where, and how learning happens. Technology-driven, student-centred solutions have taken their place. Academic institutions across the country are trying to keep up, while remaining true to their mission. The design of 21st century academic campuses and learning environments is a pivotal opportunity to connect academic visions to a changing educational landscape.

From Community to Campus to Classroom

We help make academic visions come to life through campus-wide master plans, the design of new classroom and laboratory buildings, and renovations that modernize facilities. We work with colleges and universities around the globe. We first look to understand how the relationships between spaces foster community and innovative teaching and learning goals. We then partner with our clients to develop responsive and inspiring design solutions that are fully integrated with the fabric of the campus and community.
